When it comes to building and designing substantial, contemporary homes with flawless quality and versatile layouts in classy locations, Max and Elaine Keegan make a formidable team. They also know how to enjoy the best of everything and expect nothing less, so selling their latest was a reluctant decision especially when it also means missing out on sundowners while looking out to the Noosa River.
Privacy and luxury begin at the front gate, pond-fringed pathway and the entrance with its Ralph Lauren chandelier, which opens to a vast one-leveltravertine-tiled open-plan living space, 4.2m high ceilings and a primarily neutral palette. Look around. Be impressed. To the left is a lounge space with a floor-to-ceiling golden-onyx marble feature wall and an integrated electric blue/red 'log' fireplace.
Central to the light-filled space is a dining zone and on the right is a massive kitchen with three large Ralph Lauren pendant lights. Other features include a 3m island bench, white 2-pac cabinetry, golden-onyx marble tops and splash backs, high-end Ilve appliances and a longer-than-usual walk-in pantry suiting those with a penchant for storage and of course entertaining.
Turn around. Check the clever and seemingly transparent connection from indoors to out. More entertaining spaces for dining, lounging also prepping at or serving barbeque lunches from the outdoor kitchen.
Beyond this space is the sun terrace which surrounds the turquoise L-shaped pool with water feature. On the far side of the terrace facing north, is another favourite alfresco spot - a bar.
Along the wide hallway on the right is an office or study space large enough for two; on the left is a powder room, two storage rooms and behind them, a capacious cinema with screen size to complement. Further down the hall are three queen-size bedrooms. One has an ensuite and two share a family-size bathroom.
In the east wing, over-generosity excels in the master suite with its garden outlook. There are walk-through robes with his and hers on the right and left. Continue walking through where his and hers custom made vanities are similarly placed and finally,the T-space is where the oval bath, walk-in shower and toilet are housed.
"There's no denying this home is the epitome of effortless living, functionality and it just keeps on giving, such as having a sauna in the garage," remarks Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Cameron Urquhart, adding "the location is also superb. There are dedicated cycle and walkways along the dog-friendly gazebo-dotted foreshore of the Noosa River, it runs parallel to Gympie Terrace, and is a top spot for stand-up paddle boarders, kayakers, leisure boats and the Noosa Ferry. The Noosa Yacht & Rowing club is almost on your doorstep as are some of Australia's best cafes and restaurants."
